    Summary

    Following two acclaimed solo albums in the last four years, Hempstead, Long Island MC/producer Roc Marciano embarks on a new feat. Having almost exclusively showcasing his slick, gritty narratives over self-produced sparse, nostalgic beats, the former Flipmode Squad member and U.N. co-founder is opening his unique sound to some of his friends and respected peers for December 10's Marci Beaucoup.

    Since early 2011, Roc plugged away at what he calls, "An album that wasn't all about me, but more of a project that was about how other artists sounded on my beats." Those guests include Cormega, Freeway, Guilty Simpson, Boldy James, Knowledge The Pirate, longtime affiliate KA, as well as AG Da Coroner. The last is Marci's first signing as VP of A&R at Man Bites Dog Records, the same respected imprint responsible for the third album in Roc's solo franchise.

    Marciano hopes to gain recognition as the latest in a long line of championed MCs and beat-providers. "It's the music I grew up loving," he says of self-contained Hip-Hop. "Q-Tip, EPMD, Rakim, Ultramagnetic MCs-all of those artists, they weren't just rappers. They were involved in their sound and production. So I'm just pretty much following tradition." With his cold accounts of "Pimpstead," and a vividly-described metropolitan underbelly, Roc's dusty sources, film dialogue, and subdued basslines sound made for each other. However, after two albums that topped year-end lists, and prompted a reported debate between Jay Z and The Roots' ?uestlove over which was better, Roc says he has even more to offer in number three. "Now, when I listen to stuff that I've done a while back, I want to flip it a whole different way. Lately, I feel like I have no style: I do what I have to do. Back in the days, I stuck to a four-bar loop. Now, I don't have any rules." The unconventional approach comes to life on Marci Beaucoup, through Roc's personal highlights, including "Squeeze" with Random Axe's Guilty Simpson, and longtime collaborator, Brownsville's KA.

    In honing his craft, Roc is deliberately hands-off with artists. "I don't come to people with concepts, unless we have to follow the guidelines of the track," he admits. "If I'm workin' with somebody, I want them to do what they feel. I don't want to govern a project too heavily. I'd rather just everybody do what they naturally do." Additionally, the Los Angeles-based New Yorker also only makes music when he's compelled. "The only time I really listen to music is when I'm about to do some creating," he says, referring to music beyond the N.W.A., Max B, and Erick Sermon in his current car stash. "That's when I start doing my digging. I did some record shopping today. I'll listen to the records tomorrow, or whenever I feel. I make the beats as I get the samples. I gather samples and push 'em aside to track the record."

    With the third LP, Roc looks forward to offering an array of videos. "It's important for people to see records come to life. I'm trying to do more of that," said Roc, who hopes this project awakens more of his peers in addition to the growing fan-base. "People can now see how I do albums, and become more comfortable with it. Hopefully, more artists I respect can ask me to produce." In his trademark dry nature, the double-threat looks ahead and says, "I don't only just wanna be rappin'."

    Comment: Album is DoPE!! Not one wack track on here. Ya'll are crazy for real thinking this is not good. I wanna know what ya'll be listening too??? My favorite track on here is 'Squeeze' KA sounds so DoPE on that beat. Boldy James and AG The Coroner are my favorite up and coming EMCEEs. Can't wait for AG's album dropping on MBDR. Salute Roc Marciano for dropping this RAW album and getting all the right features for this project. Hip Hop and you don't Stop!! PEACE

    Comment: Roc is one of my favorite artist. I must have played Marcberg over hundred times in my truck. This is a good album. However I prefer his vocals over these beats anyday. If Al Capone was a rapper what would he rap about?

    Comment: not a classic but advertised as other mcs over roc's beats. roc's debut was fire, he slowed it down a little on the 2nd but it was cinematic as hell, both his regular lps are in my top 25 of all time. This one is dope too; love means, the song with boldy james and the posse cut at the end are standouts, this plus pimpire strikes back definitely don't disappoint. listening to the argument on dimes makes me think of what a contemporary argument of what "on the low" means or listening to kids say "word is born"

    Comment: Unfortunately, his tracks are hit or miss. "Love Means" is classic sh*t. (well fn done) Roc also shines best when paired with Bronsolino (example: 456) But then..... some of those beats over his slow pimp vocals sound about as horrid as being served a steak with chocolate sauce. (don't ask)
